Just looking at your lists, they're nice and all, but I feel like one of the only people around here that must prefer the first half of the 20th century to the second when it comes to films.

Nope, you're not alone. I love old movies. It was great to see classics like The Philadelphia Story and Casablanca on the list last night.

I'm trying to see more older movies, my Netflix queue is loaded with them:

The Searchers
Bridge on the River Kwai
The Maltese Falcon
Dr. Stranglelove
Vertigo
etc...

I can't do silent films though, at least not yet.

Dr. Strangelove I've got it on DVD. One of the funniest movies ever made, and even though it's a commentary on the Cold War it's still very relevant

Peter Sellers is a genius.

I watched about 20 minutes of Strangelove the other night, and I fell asleep. It wasn't very interesting in it's first half-hour, but to be perfectly fair, it was around 2 AM and I was beeeeaaat.

I'm definitely going to give it another shot. No worries.

One movie I tried to watch last night and hated, The Squid and the Whale.

Maybe it was when the little kid jizzed on a locker, maybe it was when the jerky older brother made Anna Paquin's nose bleed, I don't know, I'm not a doctor.

Sorry namkcuR, maybe some other day I'll like this movie, but not today.

Strangelove is my second favourite Kubrick film (behind 2001)...

Sir, you can't let him in here. He'll see everything. He'll see the big board!

I need to see 2001, too

And almost all of Capra's and Hitchcock's work.

At least I can see Gregory Peck is the absolute best in To Kill a Mockingbird

I dearly love all the other Kubrick I've seen, and he's one of my favorite directors. Which is why I'm not going to give up until I'm equally in love with Strangelove.

2001 is in my top 10.

One Kubrick movie I refuse to see is Eyes Wide Shut. I saw maybe 10 minutes of it, and it happened to involve Tom Cruise in an orgy. No thanks.

I need to see Eyes Wide Shut still. Not at the top of the list though.

I wasn't a fan either...

This guy once tried to convince me that this was Kubrick's best film... I stopped talking to him after that.

To be honest, the only Kubrick movie I've seen all the way through was The Shining. The others I've caught bits and pieces of on TV, but never sat down to watch them.

I still consider A.I. half-Kubrick, half-Spielberg.

For the record:

Spartacus: (been too long to rate properly)

Dr. Strangelove: N/A

2001: A Space Odyssey: 10/10, perfect in nearly every way

A Clockwork Orange: 9.5/10, nearly perfect

The Shining: 9.0/10, possibly the finest horror film ever, minus a point for fucking up the novel too much

Full Metal Jacket: 9.5/10, absolutely haunting

All the other Kubrick films I haven't seen, or haven't had the opportunity to see yet. But I'm sure I will one day.
